Sunday School - Whirl

Every Whirl Lectionary lesson follows a four-part sequence: Welcome, Hear, Respond, and Launch (WHRL!). Each week, kids and leaders start their time together by identifying where they are in the church year and watching an animated video. Next, they dive into the Whirl Story Bible or Whirl NRSV Bible, respond to the scripture lesson with creative leaflet activities, and circle up to review the lesson and pray before being sent out.

The lesson videos are designed to set up the lesson each Sunday. Kids watch animated characters their own age encounter real questions and challenges as they live out their faith. The videos are designed to help kids start thinking about what they would do in similar situations, instead of telling kids what to do.

4 year olds to those who have just completed 4th grade are encouraged to join us for VBS! Vacation Bible School will be in the mornings on July 17-20 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. We will have a picnic on Friday, July 21 at Southwinds Park at 6 p.m. Everyone is invited to the picnic, whether you come to VBS or not!

We are still looking for volunteers to help with Vacation Bible School. We need more teachers, because we will have several groups of 5 students of various ages to encourage children to build new relationships and to help one another. Help us try something new for our students!

We also need station leaders for Games, Imagination Station, and Bible Discovery classrooms. No matter your talents, we would love to have you join us for the week!
